A former Tennessee church organist claims in a lawsuit filed this week that he was raped by a seminarian who was a protégé of a powerful Polish prelate and that the bishop of Knoxville tried to cover it up.

The accuser, identified in court papers as John Doe, said the seminarian, Wojciech Sobczuk, sexually assaulted him on Feb. 5, 2019, and that afterward Bishop Rick Stika told a fellow priest “that Doe was the aggressor and had raped Sobczuk,” the suit states.

“The lawsuit seeks to hold Stika and the Diocese accountable for their role in facilitating Sobczuk’s abuse of Doe, intimidating Doe into silence, and defaming Doe to protect their public image,” says the suit, which was filed Tuesday and named Stika and the diocese as defendants and is seeking unspecified damages. Sobczuk is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

Sobczuk, who is in his mid-twenties, arrived at the diocese about four years ago “at the recommendation” of Stanislaw Dziwisz, the former archbishop of Krakow, Poland, according to an Nov. 15, 2018, article in the Knoxville Diocese’s official newspaper that was written by diocesan spokesman Jim Wogan.

…Doe worked for the Knoxville diocese from December 2015 through August 2019, the suit states. He says that he was introduced to Sobczuk by a colleague and that the seminarian, over dinner, soon confided to him that he was gay.

“Doe felt bad for Sobczuk and wanted to be supportive,” the suit states.

Doe says Sobczuk pressured him “into brief sexual touching and oral sex on isolated occasions” and for anal sex, which he repeatedly declined.

“Sobczuk apologized for being forceful by saying that he was inexperienced sexually, and that Doe shouldn’t tell anyone about what happened or Sobczuk would be kicked out of the Church and sent back to ‘anti-gay Poland,’“ the suit states.

Then, one night, Doe said in the lawsuit that Sobczuk “forcibly, painfully, anally raped him” and then ordered him to shower “for the purpose of removing evidence of the rape.”

“Doe bled for three days after the rape,” the suit states.

Doe says Sobczuk continued to stalk him and gave him an expensive Catholic prayer book inscribed by Stika and a card on Valentine’s Day 2019 in which he called Doe a “wonderful man” and added: “And for what was wrong — I apologize with all my heart.”

Nine days later, Doe said that he called the Knoxville Police Department to report the alleged rape but that the police warned him he could lose his job.

“Discouraged and fearful of the church — and unable to cope economically with the consequences of losing his job — Doe did not file a report,” the suit states.

Recall what I said in previous posts about Covert Narcissists (this is also applicable to sociopaths): one way people with “Cluster B” personality disorders (or on the spectrum – narcissists, sociopaths) harm people is by playing the “pity” card.

Some of those previous posts:

They will get you to feel sorry for them, so they can hurt you or take advantage of you somehow, whether that is by sexually assaulting you, using you financially, or getting you to give them constant attention and pity.

Be very careful about whom you give your affection, compassion, and empathy to, and the length of time you do so.

Don’t just indiscriminately give your affection and compassion to every single person who crosses your path, for an unlimited time, because that person may be abusive or toxic and not have your best interests at heart.
